Inspired by former football player Emmanuel Acho's popular video series, this audiobook is aimed primarily at young listeners who are unfamiliar with the basic concepts, history, and effects of systemic racism in America. The intent is to help kids along "the road to antiracist allyship," and narrator Landon Woodson supports this intent with the serious, encouraging tone of a friendly coach. While he covers topics that are complicated and often grim, Woodson's conversational style keeps the material grounded, and his pacing is slow enough to follow yet brisk enough that it doesn't lapse into a lecture. This adaptation may not be the most comprehensive audiobook about racism for kids, but it provides a solid listening experience, making it a useful tool for youth, caregivers, and educators.
